An unbelievable experience - we loved every minute aboard our Karma Kat! What an incredible privilege we had to spend seven nights & days sailing around the magnificent Whitsundays Islands. We had three other vessels & families with us, travelling in convoy. It was a marvellous experience gift is all - kids aged from 2yes to 22yrs across 4 families & life long friends.

We did a bareboat charter with Charter Yachts Australia. They were fantastic at every step of the process, including preparation and throughout the charter. Very responsive to any requests or issues raised. We reported a sub-standard piece of equipment rented from an outside provider. Charter Yachts immediately contacted the outside provider and had the hire for the sub-standard equipment refunded within 10 minutes. Outstanding service and experience. Thank you, CYA!

I am sorry to hear you had some faulty equipment but very relieved to see we were able to remedy this for you, and quickly too!
